2017 Chevrolet Cruze To Feature 1.6-Litre Diesel

Modified On Dec 07, 2016 05:43 PM By Raunak for Chevrolet Cruze


The second-generation Cruze will be powered by a 1.6-litre diesel and will be coupled to a nine-speed automatic transmission.   

Recently, Chevrolet revealed the hatchback version of the second-generation Cruze. Along with it, the automaker also confirmed the long-awaited diesel version of the sedan. In North America, the second-gen Cruze made its world debut in June 2015. However, the automaker didn’t reveal the diesel powertrain of the sedan at that time. Unlike the previous version’s 2.0-litre diesel, which is currently on sale in India, the new Cruze will be powered by a 1.6-litre diesel. It will reportedly come paired with an option of a new nine-speed automatic or a standard six-speed manual.

While the petrol-powered Cruze is already on sale in the USA, the diesel avatar will go sale in the first half of 2017. Speaking of its Indian launch, the present Cruze is in dire need of replacement, and its poor sales figures are indicative of the same. We expect the American automaker to launch the second-generation Cruze next year in the country. The info about this new diesel is scarce, but rumours suggest it will be Opel-Vauxhall’s 1.6-litre ‘Whisper Diesel’.

India is likely to get the same diesel engine, along with the new 1.4-litre turbocharged petrol that made its debut with the Cruze in 2015 and is already on sale in the USA. If the petrol option is offered, it will be the first time for the Cruze nameplate in India.
